Update 2: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn9achterbahn-derandere

For now, the final update of Achterbahn.

Pic 1 showing a Soccer boy in white shiny shorts, probably from ep. 9. Probably more boys of this and the other teams. Pic 2 from ep 33 “Der Andere” (completely on YouTube).  Nice PE and locker room scenes. Also shirtless, but I think rather few shiny shorts. Reminds me of “Sich kennenlernen, sich vertragen”.

Rating ~6-7

I have to search for more episodes. Many swim scenes, but I think mainly or only in speedos and non-shiny shorts.

Main entry rating 7 at

Comment: At least one young men (Steve Antin ?) in light grey shorts (probably not shiny) and white underwear underneath making sit-ups. Also a young lady in tight red shiny Adidas shorts and men (boxing) in red, dark blue and I think black shorts (black maybe not shiny). Maybe some more colors?

Many, many years ago, at it’s airing in Germany in ~1990, I somehow liked the scene in pic 1. But now, I prefer younger actors. Maybe someone is interested in young men or women.

To me rating 2-3 only.

Update: Kinderen voor Kinderen 4

kinderenvoorkinderen4-n2kinderenvoorkinderen4-n1

Thanks once more Erik, for pointing out that the brand is Rucanor. The Dutch company even still exists. Obviously, also the other white, red and blue shorts are from Rucanor as well.

Unfortunately, the clip is rather short and rather few close-ups, but some very good scenes. Very interesting shiny shorts!

Pic 2 is from the same episode a bit later with boys and girls in other, white shorts. More 70s style.

Episode 6 also coming soon. Main entry at

Update: Schülergeschichten

schuelergeschichten-n2

By coincidence, I stumbled again upon this nice series and found an even better scene.

Very good Adidas shorts. At least red, blue and black. Probably not all are shiny. But definitely the red one on the right. Also not only Adidas Junior but splitted Adidas with inner briefs but also mainly tight.

Previously rating 6-7 only now around 7-8. Probably one of the best vintage Adidas series.

Update: Cebollitas

cebollitas-ep169cebollitas-ep279

As announced one more update of Cebollitas and the brands. Currently, I don’t have the time to check more episodes. I don’t assume more brands anyway.

Pic 1 from ep 169 showing Fantasmita in blue shiny shorts with 3 horizontal stripes on the legs. 3 stripes are copyrighted and usually must be Adidas, but I doubt that and haven’t found Adidas text or leaf logos. In other episodes like 222, the boys wear blue shorts with 2 stripes. Gamuza wears white Umbro shorts.

Pic 2 from ep 279 showing boys and girls in both white and dark blue shorts playing Basketball (that’s why there are also girls).

Pic 3 showing a young man in purple shorts with stars in ep 200.

Pic 4 showing the boys in black or similar Olan shorts with many larger diamonds in ep 386.

List 6: Cebollitas brands

cebollitas252cebollitas75cebollitas252b

Some time ago, I checked almost all 458 episodes of this Argentinian series for my bib overalls blog. I don’t have the time to recheck all episodes. The boys (and sometimes girls) wore at least ~4 or 5 different Soccer shorts + swim shorts. Although a Soccer series, I think there’s less than half of the time Soccer shown.

I think they mainly wore shorts of the brand Umbro (mainly medium blue and white ones (pics 2+4, main entry pic 1). The logo is a diamond and text Umbro underneath and a horizontal diamond band at the legs and a thin stripe above.

Pic 1 showing them sitting in plain white shorts of brand Olan in ep 252, another pic in the main entry. The logo is shown in pic 3. Also in plain black shorts and shirts at the beginning of ep 222. And black shorts with many little white and red diamonds in ep 386.

Later in ep 222 the other team wore different black shorts with 2 horizontal stripes and black shirts (pic 5). To me the logo says “Power” but not sure (at least starting with “Po”). I haven’t found this brand (maybe no-name brand or sponsored?)

Also other shorts with 3 and 2 horizontal stripes on the legs. At least one more post coming soon also showing young girls (Basketball) and a man in purple shorts. Unfortunately, the second half of the series is only available in a very bad image quality. Main entry, rating 10 at

Comment: Dominik and Matthias of band Ketch-up in German Adidas soccer shirts and black shorts. Probably here the song “Eins Zu Null (Hangin’ Tough)”. Also in blue shiny shorts either in this and/or in RTL Kinderhitparade (rating 9). I don’t like the modern black shorts. Maybe more shorts/others?

I found this very brief clip by coincidence on one of my VHS tapes as it was not labeled with this. Around 1 minute only, which is at the end of the show. Not sure if I have more clips on other tapes. Blue shorts probably from a different episode. I only have this 2 scenes. One from a distance showing both boys on the far left, at least showing a bit from the shorts (length of shorts, height of boys). Pic 2 showing a close-up of one of them (maybe Matthias ?) Sorry, no better pics of both (in this show).

Aka “MiniStars” and “Li-La-Launebär präsentiert Die MiniStars”. There’s also a Dutch show/band called De MiniStars and in other countries (with other kids). But I don’t know of shorts in there.

No DVD nor clips known. At least there are CDs. For more infos see RTL Kinderhitparade. Does anybody has better pics or clips especially of the blue shorts?

Comment: Some boys and girl in shiny shorts in song Trim, trim, trim (pictured). Also a bit later boys and girls in white shorts with yellow boarders (maybe not shiny) in song Lui zijn.

2 in white shorts with green boarders (also a boy sitting on a rowing device and floor).

One boy in black shiny shorts with orange stripes, one boy in medium blue shorts, yellow stripes and one boy in red shorts (white boarders). Rating at least 7-8.

Also at least boy and girls in white and black shorts in episode 6 (coming soon, also shirtless scenes in speedos). I don’t know/don’t remember all episodes.

Perfect show and songs. Also several entries on my bib overalls blog (f,m rating 8).

Update: Not sure about the brands. I think there are 2 different brands. At least one might be Italian Lotto. One more pic (close-up) at. At least the white and black are Rucanor shorts. Thanks to Erik.

Update: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn-ep44achterbahn-ep28

Some more episodes. Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 44. One in medium blue shiny shorts with sweatpants underneath (what is very rare in Germany), the other one in dark blue (or black) shiny shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28.

At least one update coming soon (white Soccer).

I also have checked some more of It (2017). The yellow shorts aren’t shiny. Damn. I have uploaded a better pic of the red ones.

Comment: Some boys in swim shorts in different episodes. Mainly most wore speedos when swimming. Pic 1, one boy in larger, medium blue shiny swim shorts also sitting (also another one in nice yellow speedos), pic 2 one in wet yellow, green, red ones. I think also episodes about Soccer at least one in white shorts. One boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28 and boys in light and medium blue shorts (one in sweatpants underneath), both pics coming soon.

Another swimming scene in ep 68 “Flachschwimmer” unlike almost all other episodes available on DVD. At least one teen boy in dark swim shorts. PE, Basketball and locker room scenes in ep 33 “Der Andere” at least one shirtless in medium blue shiny shorts.

Good shirtless swimming scenes and handsome boys in “Der Fünfzigmarkschein” and “Nie wider Ibiza” but I think either speedos or board shorts.

Great family series about friendships. I don’t know all episodes and have some partially on VHS. I have to check for the episode names of the ones pictured and also other episodes. But I remember rather few good shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 7-8 for now. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

Subtitle: “Filme über Freunde heute”. Although always used, the word “heute” doesn’t belong to the subtitle to me, but it’s obviusly the announcement (“today” showing) of the actual episode as separately shown at the intro at a different frame.
